Did you know that 85% of all clothing ends up in the landfill, while only 15% gets recycled or donated?
Recycling for clothing and textiles will be available for curb service customers in Akron starting Monday, Oct. 26.
The clothing and textiles will be picked up on the normal trash and recycle collection day. Curb service customers were sent a Simple Recycle postcard last week briefly explaining the program and the basic items that will be accepted inside the green recycle bags. The green bags will be provided to Akron’s residential customers in a second wave of mass mailings this week.
